Report: .CO domains holding value
Cool Report! ...Thanks!
Press release recycling at its best with no insight. Hell it isn't even poor journalism!
GoDaddy reneged the registration of weddingdresses.co. It was already registered when they sold it to me. W T Frick.
It isn't simply "already registered", WeddingDresses.CO is reserved, so GoDaddy didn't sell anything to you.
GoDaddy just released a special code which registers a new .co for $9.99
Ill admit im a noob but its a little strange that I was able to pay for the name and it was in my account. Then they sent emails saying it was already registered to someone else, and sent a refund.
They didn't sell it back , sometimes it just happens, i have the same with a great .net only to be emailed the reg was not successful / frustrating for sure
I grabbed LawsuitLawyer/co
DSG.co sold for $3,788 at Afternic.
A nice sale but once again the exception rather than the rule. These are once in a long while sales. That's about it.
Better rarely than never.
Not if your investing and unable to find end-users. Most domainers will not go looking for end-users.
Agree, if you're investing you should know that you need to keep the domain 5-10 years before you can see profit.
Or drop it.
I wonder who picked it up!
the .com is for dick's sporting goods
That is the case if there is demand.
In general, secondary extensions have not performed much better as time goes on.
The waiting game will only work with quality domains. Otherwise an asset can turn into a liability.
It's forwarding to a company called Card Marketing International based in New Zealand. The WhoIS shows that someone connected with that same company has it.
Somebody must have made a nice flip, because it was listed in a sales thread on Namepros for $75 in Oct. 2011, along with a bunch of other LLL.
Very nice sale!
Hi, I think you guys & gals need some .CO renewal codes these days. Here are some which I found as best
gdx624k = 32% Off
gdx713d = 32% Off
gdx347de = 35% Off

Thanks BM! (repped)
..."and quality extensions". (ghost)
The waiting game will not work with this ccTLD. Will there be exceptions? Yes. But VERY, VERY few.
The best bet that anyone could do reading this text would be to purge your account of all .CO's to prevent renewal fees from increasing your losses. At a minimum, make sure autorenew is "OFF". A few years ago, a very successful domainer stated something like this, "if you're not making money now, what will magically change in the future to bring you profit?".
If you're flipping fine, but please don't expect .CO valuations to rise over the long-term because that will not happen. IMHO
i have got an offer for d*i*s*c*u*s*s.co for $300, think i should sell?
How did the offer come about? Did they email you or you them? IMO, with a $300 offer I would counter at $1500 to $3000, which is a fair price for both sides if they contacted you and see how they respond to that. Good luck with it!
Yes. SELL SELL SELL!
If its another domainer then you may be able to squeeze out a few extra hundred - If is an end user, then I agree with the others - counter at 1.5K or even take it to 3K
I was contacted by a domainer a few weeks ago with a low xxx offer and sold it for high xxx
No, do not sell. Do as micro says. Allow it to drop.
Sooner or later, even the hardliners come around to reality. :]
